Avishtech announces the formal launch of its lab materials services and consulting. The combination of state-of-the-art equipment and the deep knowledge and insight of the company’s materials science experts delivers a level of information and expertise previously not available to the industry. In addition, access to these services is enabled through an easy-to-use interface on the company’s website or by directly emailing labs@avishtech.com; most information is available with 24-48 hours of request and the results include not only the test data but the interpretation of it as well. Avishtech’s experts are only a phone call away during the testing process and the focus is on delivering the correct information in the timeliest manner possible.

Keshav Amla, Founder and CEO of Avishtech notes, “With today’s increasingly tight PCB design parameters, the more information that product developers have up front, the better. In addition, today, there are so many more aspects of materials characteristics and performance traits that influence the operability, reliability and life cycle of a final design than can be found in the typical data sheets provided by materials suppliers. In our state-of-the-art lab, we are able to test for these properties in a highly accurate and repeatable manner and can provide the highest degree of confidence in relating these base properties to results in the real hardware.”

With more companies employing MBSE (models-based-system engineering) design methodologies, there is a greater need for complete and correct information in digital format that will lead to an optimized design that addresses all of the steps in the product development process---from design to the downstream processes of manufacturing, assembly, test, field repairs, and product life cycle.

Amla adds, “In an MBSE environment, the focus is on the systematic gathering and reporting of critical design information in the shortest amount of time possible in digital format. Very few, if any, companies will have the capabilities in-house to provide all of the materials performance information in an accurate and timely manner. With the services that we offer, we become an extension of our customers’ design team and we provide a vast amount of information in a clear and concise manner, for a very reasonable price, in the shortest amount of time possible.”
